Vintage chic frame trio
Three very special images or photographs can have pride of place in this frame trio with vintage style. The beautiful, understated washed out effect is created with the Marabu Chalky-Chic chalk paints using the wet technique.
The vintage look is currently full on trend and with Marabu Chalky-Chic chalk paints it is really easy to achieve. The wet technique gives these flat wooden frames a lively appearance.
How it is done:
Use a brush or roller to apply the chalk paint, e.g. in Grey Blue, to the surface which is free from grease and dust. Leave to dry for 30 minutes or speed up the process with a hair dryer.
Apply a second coat of paint, e.g. in Ginger. Do not let this coat dry.
Rub over the paint immediately with a damp cloth to smudge it. This predominantly leaves paint in the grain of the wood. The wetter the cloth, the stronger the colour wash effect.
Add a hook to each of the frames designed in different colour combinations (see image on the right), attach vertically to a cord and hang.
